“Every once in a great while, one has the good fortune to run into a creative spirit as fine and unique as Kathryn Blume’s. Her writing is searching and engaging, fueled by a fierce commitment to her own truth. And, because hers is a generous and wise spirit, her truth opens us up to the world’s. This is a voice that needs to be heard.” -Ellen McLaughlin
In The Accidental Activist, Kathryn Blume, Co-founder of the Lysistrata Project, recounts the story of her astonishing inability to save the world. In a show that’s part fact, part fantasy, part caffeine-induced madness, this irreverent and irrepressible performer imagines how she might possibly make a difference on a planet which couldn’t care less. Laced with self-deprecating wit, impossibly optimistic socio-political observations, and deft sketches of determined, defiant women from around the world, The Accidental Activist is one lone person’s on-going search for a good reason to get out of bed.
